What is the difference between oxycodone/acetaminophen and hydrocodone/acetaminophen?

- pain, muscle pain, acetaminophen, hydrocodone, oxycodone
I've taken oxycodone/acetaminophen before and it worked for the pain at that time. Now (years later) I pulled some muscles in my back and the doctor prescribed hydrocodone/acetaminophen (along with a muscle relaxer) and it doesn't seem to be working at all along with I feel a little sick to my stomach.

To the best of my knowledege, Oxycodone is the same as Oxycontin, and hyrdrocodone is the same as Vicodin, Oxycodone being far stronger for the pain than the Vicodin.
Just a little bit of FYI, when you come to this site at the very top it will list "Drugs from A to Z and you can look up most any drug you are interested in and it may save you a ton of time waiting for an answer.
Best of luck

Oxycodone Acetaminophen according to my Rx bottle is generic for Percocet. As for what the active ingredient of "oxycodone" vs "hydrocodon" I don't know what they mean or what the differences are. I would like to know myself.

oxycodone/acetaminophen is around 1.5 times stronger then hydrocodone/acetaminophen (depending on the dose). either one of them can upset someones stomach, just depends on the persons body chemistry.
